    Unhappy Can someone tell me why this script doesn't work?

    I'm pulling my hair out on this one. When I get it working there will be more model numbers and more manuals added.
    Right now, when I run it it pops up the alert telling me my manual doesn't exist before I even enter anything.
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <head>
      <title></title>
      <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
    </head>
    <body>
    <FORM NAME="askModel">
    Please enter your model number : <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="model" SIZE="40">
    </INPUT>
    <INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Submit">
    </INPUT>
    </FORM>
    <script language=""javascript" type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    manual = document.askModel.model.value;
          switch(manual) {
    	  case 'gcva070bx40':
    	  window.open('RP6612001.pdf', '_blank');
    	  break;
    	  case 'gcva070cx40':
    	  window.open('RP6612001.pdf', '_blank');
    	  break;
    	  case 'gcva090bx50':
    	  window.open('RP6612001.pdf', '_blank');
    	  break;
    	  case 'gcva090cx50':
    	  window.open('RP6612001.pdf', '_blank');
    	  break;
    	  default:
    	  alert('Your manual does not exist')
    	  }
    	  -->
    	  </script>
    </body>
    </html>
    Thanks to anyone with some insight.

    One question if you don't mind. Is it ok/proper to put like 200 cases in a switch statement? Or is there a better way?

    What you have now can be altered to:
    Code:
    function pdfDoc() {
    manual = document.askModel.model.value;
          switch(manual) {
    	  case 'gcva070bx40':
    	  case 'gcva070cx40':
    	  case 'gcva090bx50':
    	  case 'gcva090cx50':
    	  window.open('RP6612001.pdf', '_blank');
    	  break;
    	  default:
    	  alert('Your manual does not exist')
    	  }
    }
    Other solutions may be possible depending the relationship between model and pdf.
